Hartford Snowmobile Insurance: Prep Your Snowmobile for Winter Hartford Snowmobile Insurance Prep Your Snowmobile for Winter

Saying goodbye to your warm weather motorcrafts is always thought, but for those outdoor recreation lovers lucky enough to have their own snowmobiles parting with summer is much more bitter sweet. As the snowy season approaches it’s time to break out those snow crafts and prep them for their winter voyages. Depending on how you left your sled last season, some crafts may need a little more prepping than others. Here’s a checklist to help get make sure that your snowmobile is tuned up and ready to ride.

  • Check Your Fluids- It’s important to start off on the right foot at the beginning of the season, as such sportsmen should check their snowmobile’s coolant, brake fluid, and oil and top off when necessary as you would any other vehicle. It’s also important to drain any old fuel from the gas tank which may have been left over from the end of last season.
  • Don’t Skip the Details- Spark plugs, oil and air filters and light bulbs; all of these are commonly overlooked by snow craft owners eager to get out on the fresh powder but can create major functional complications. Proactively checking these components will help prevent sledders from encountering problem while out on a ride. Experts also recommend that you inspect fuel and oil lines along with the clutch and drive belt for cracks, leaks and excessive wear and replace these components as needed.
  • Clear Your Pipes- During off-season storage many a motor vehicle can become home to a variety of critters, especially small rodents who like to nest in exhaust pipes and air intake cavities. Inspecting these spaces as well as any other open space in the machine for debris will help prevent dangerous particles from entering into your motor which can be a costly problem to resolve.
  • Cover Your Tracks- Shocks and other suspension components are crucial snowmobile component, and should be monitored for proper operation, leaks and defects that will decrease performance and lead to an increased potential for component failure. The same can be said for the vehicle’s tracks, lugs should be tight and studs should not be loose or protruding. The last thing riders need is a snapped track which can be extremely dangerous while out on a ride, even fatal.
